Church of St. Theresa, Vilnius
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
The somewhat plain exterior of Church of St. Theresa belies the splendor of what's inside. Built by the Discalced Carmelite order in the 17th century, the church is one of the earliest Baroque buildings in Lithuania; its grand construction, using very expensive materials, is atypical for the monastic association. Today's interior was created by a local artist during the second half of the 18th century and links with the famous Gates of Dawn chapel. Inside the building, you can learn more about the church's namesake, St. Theresa, by studying the brightly colored frescoes that illustrate her life. Spend time admiring the high altar; it is considered one of the finest in the nation.

You can climb the stairs on the right from the entrance gate of dawn, left and go into the Church. In the Church is decorated with beautiful murals and fine art, stained glass while on the way to the altar so widely. Ceiling painting too neatly observed with the naked eye, but later run picture up and really stunning detail, were drawn. The altar and organ is so gorgeous. Be at the front of the Church entrance flow in and out. We have very good broad church anyway, so not too much popular and look at paintings and works of art.show original
